entitlement reform. >> that's a whole nother conversation. on the issue of taxes warren buffett has written an op-ed in "the new york times" today renewing his stire to see taxes go up on people like him and him himself. in the op-ed he says people who make between a million and $10 million should see their taxable rate go up to 30% and those who make more than $10 million should be taxed at 35%. we'll be back after the break. see you on the other side. as i looked out across the battlefield at antietam. i saw the future of one great nation. but only barely, because the sun was like, way in my grill. george mcclellan, the general, hands me his pair of foster grant sunglasses, and i could see! my wife, mary todd, found them so fetching. >> he looked so fine i started to call him babe-raham lincoln. >> i was like, mary, please. >> you look like a baby, a literal child. i bought a pair online, shipped to 115 main st., that's my gettysburg address. i'm funny. i find them to be affordable frames, of the people, for the people, and, not, by the people, that's par
dimon is getting public praise from billionaire warren buffett. this week on charlie rose, mr. buffett said he thinks mr. dimon could be the "best person for the job" after treasury secretary timothy geithner steps down. mr. buffett notes that dimon could deftly handle another financial crisis, even though jp morgan was forced to take a government bailout during the financial crisis and dimon came under question earlier this year, when the bank lost 6 billion dollars in a trading blunder. cyber monday could almost be re- named "mobile monday." a growing number of consumers used their smartphones and tablets to shop on cyber monday this year. it contributed to an overall bump in sales of 30% from last year. comscore is estimating that sales will reach a whopping 1.5 billion dollars. amazon's kindle fire was the day's most searched-for gift on the web. others that were high in demand were uggs, ipads, the ipod touch, legos, and the wii. some consumers did not get what they bargained for this cyber monday. 132 websites in the u.s. and europe were shut down after allegedly selling counterf
, raising the marginal tax rate on the top end is spur purely a symbolic t. and the reason warren buffett is able to say, well, my secretary is taxed at a higher rate than i am is not because of that rate, it's because of the capital gains rate at 15%. >> we need to ask him about that, too. and i'm sure he would agree capital gains rates, which were about 28% under bill clinton when we had the roaring '90s, are at 15% right now. i've got to say, this is one of those areas where, when i was in congress, i wanted the capital gains rate to go down, thought it was too high at 28%. it's at 15% now. if you want to look at income disparity, you know, in part, the 15% capital gains tax rate and carried interest allows the super wealthy to get by paying a hell of a lot less than middle-class americans. >> if you're for fairness, that's where the fairness is. that's why the rich don't pay as much tax as the others. the marginal tax rate is marginal. if you raise it a couple of percentage points, it doesn't change much. if you raise that capital gains rate, that's where the big money is made. >> he
norquist's imagination does such a response to exist? >>guest: okay, warren buffett has made a lot of money, some of it off of gaming the political system, he invests in insurance companies, and lobbies to raise the death tax which drives people to buy insurance. okay? you can get rich playing that game but it is not investing, it is playing crony politics in economics. that is a shame. he has done the same thing with green investing. same on him for gaming the system and giving money to politicians who write rules that make your assets go up. the real economy, if he thinks the government can take a dollar and you go do an invest or who does not have that dollar and it does not infect investment that is silly unless he lands on going to obama and getting money from a stimulus package and he considers that investment. when the government takes a dollar away from the american people or $1 trillion, that is a trillion not available to be saved and invested, and i am sorry if buffett can't see that but that is silly. >>neil: do you worry, fairly or not, you have been seen as you unique wizard o
. how do we come to this agreement, we keep hearing left the tax cuts they now warren buffett came out with an op-ed in "the new york times" say saying we should make that 500000 or under because two and 50,000 of their family is not rich and if the tax cuts expire as well they may be in trouble. do you think there is any wiggle room to move at 250,000 number little bit higher? >> would have to raise a significant amount of revenue so we are on a sustainable path. we cut taxes at a time when the economy could not afford it. we baltimore on a credit card. it will be required for the u.s. government on that unsustainable path. but ultimately that is what it will help our economy. david: what about the idea of deductions? even though the deadline is approaching quickly, when i put $25,000 cap on deductions. covering the overwhelming majority of americans. $25,000 cap on deductions it is 40% more than raise the top marginal rates. >> from his very first budget the president proposed limit on functions allowing people to upper income groups deduct 28% rate so you and i get the same benefits
to get used to that. warren buffett talking about going over. probably going to happen in january. i feel like we're going to go over. you can meet with all of the ceos you want to. doesn't really matter. 200,000 people in a room. doesn't really matter. norquist saying don't have a deal. have to raise taxes. democrats don't seem to favor lowered defense budget and favor higher taxes for the rich and so we're done. i think we're done. >> after durbin speoke yesterda, if you're going to get a blueprint, he doesn't want entitlements be part of it for next year. >> it's the 1,000-point solution. maybe that will change their mind. durbin said no. norquist is saying no tax increase. what else is there? am i missing something? what am i missing? blankfe >> stallen made a lot of sense. mass murderer about you doesn't mean he didn't make sense. >> blankfein, kent, mayer, roberts of comcast. is there anything these guys can say to change their tune? to get people -- >> we're just past thanksgiving. let's give it a little time. things can change. we've seen lots of back and forth. everybody is estab
tax increases will ruin the economy. warren buffett wrote an op-ed, it's a lame outdated discredited argument from the gop. stop repeating the talking points. >> larry elder, i'll give you the last word. >> may i respond. the clinton income tax hikes underproduced revenue based upon their projections. they got in less money than they thought. when clinton lowered capital gains they got in far more revenue than they thought. cutting taxes is expansionary and raising taxes is contractionary. >> this discussion still comes down to spending. >>> a man in washington who has never wavered on this issue is senator tom coburn and in 20 minutes mr. coburn will join to us vent his frustrations about the fiscal cliff and the one-sided discussion and attention on revenues alone which is driving me crazy. politics aside, the question is what happens to the economy and your money if we go over the cliff or just kick the can down the road? you're going to want to hear what our next guest's predictions are because he's a former undersecretary of the treasury and he's a serious guy. later on, didn't
. >> good morning. >> we've laid out some of the basics there and warren buffett was out this morning talking about taxing the wealthy. he says there should be a minimum tax on millionaires. take a listen. >> i think it would have a great effect in terms of the morale of the middle class who have seen themselves paying high payroll taxes, income taxes, and then they've watched guys like me end up paying a rate that's below that, you know, paid by the people in my office. >> you know, he was the one that in a way started all this, susan, because he talked about he shouldn't pay a lower tax rate than his secretary. now he's saying that taxes should rise, maybe for people making over $500,000 a year. a lot of republicans loved him for his business sense, but have they stopped listening to him now? >> well, and of course, if you raise the minimum tax on millionaires, i think americans would be all for that. the trouble is, it doesn't really raise you enough money, not the kind of money we're talking about. and even going down to $500,000, the reason that the level's been set at $250,000 p
. but obviously grover ain't going to do that because we can get someone like warren buffett to be -- perhaps we can get somebody like warren buffett to be the new anti-grover norquist guy. let's make a pledge to warren buffett. how about that one. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> bill: hey, good morning everybody. welcome to the "full court press" here on current tv. this tuesday morning. november 27. so good to see you. thank you for joining us here on the "full court press." as we tackle the big stories of the day. tell you what's going on here in our nation's capital. around the country around the globe and take your calls, of course. you're part of the conversation. we'll hear from you. how about this. with less than a month since president obama's re-election people are already talking about 2016 and here's the good news. newt gingrich yesterday said that he will seriously consider running again. keep your fingers crossed. i mean he made such a total ass of himself this time around, we can only hope tha
at the end of the year. and in today's "new york times" warren buffett calls for a, quote, minimum tax for the wealthy writing let's not forget about the rich and ultra rich going on strike. capital gains rates and ordinary income rates are increased. the ultra rich, including me, will forever pursue investment opportunities. buffett calls for the cutoff point to increase from $250,000 to $500,000, by the way. defensem democrats are facing pressure from interest groups who oppose changes to medicare and social security like this one from the aarp. >> some politicians think medicare and social security are just numbers in a budget. well, we worked hard for those benefits. we earned them. and if washington tries to cram decisions about the future of these programs into a last-minute budget teal, we'll all pay the price. >> and there's your potential pressure from the left. gop negotiators have put adjusting the measure of inflation which determines social security benefits back on the table, something the president had agreed to in 2011. majority leader harry reid has ruled that out this
officials will behave like spoiled children, and warren buffett took the gop to school today, quote, let's forget about the rich and ultra rich going on strike and stuffing their ample funds under their mattresses if, gasp, capital gains rates and ordinary income rates are increased. the ultra rich, including me, says mr. buffett, will forever pursue investment opportunities. so he's calling for a minimum tax on millionaires and billionaires. will republicans listen? >> well, it's a sensible way. if we're going to have a deal, we will have to see some kind of compromise. a minimum tax on people making over $1 million a year can generate a half it trillion in a ten-year scale. if you include deductions you don't necessarily have to go to 39%. you can go to 37% if you are looking for compromise. but i think there's a bigger issue here as well, and that is the idea this is a slightly critical towards the democrats, the biggest issue that this country faces right now is getting us back to 4% economic growth, 3% or 4% economic growth and seeing wages increase right now. this whole idea that d
could reach in the middle. i think that's a huge concern. in fact, this morning we spoke with warren buffett about this very issue. he thinks there's a real chance we will get some sort of a deal but maybe not necessarily by december 31st. he thinks the middle of the party could work out a deal. they will go kicking and screaming and if the leadership feels they will lose their leadership position, that could make them drag their heels as well and not get a deal as quickly. if we go over december 31st, we'll see what happens with the markets at that point. >> dow 8,000. becky quick, sorry. thank you. >> reporter: thank you. >> up next, are republicans and conservatives on the verge of a breakup? >>> the republican party needs conservatives but do conservatives need the republican party? today we're taking a deep dive into where the two overlap and where they don't. go back to this past spring, just a month or so after mitt romney secured the nomination. author and veteran craig shirley wrote something that caught a lot of our eyes saying the party itself had about become nothing more
help the deficit. warren buffett can help them out. lori rothman and melissa francis with more coming up. dagen: the market is up, that is good. good afternoon read >> pushing for middle-class tax cuts without any spending concessio concessions, president obama to meet with business leaders on the fiscal cliff after speaking just last hour. we'll ask lou dobbs that he thinks ceos will help to make deals happen. >> now washington is looking at the one sacred mortgage deduction, maybe get rid of it to help heal the budget crisis. >> charlie gasparino on the future of the firm. time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes, before the new york stock exchange, nicole petallides on the floor. a deal is possible by christmas. >> hoping to get some positive comments from john boehner. he is optimistic. a nice little boost. from negative to positive to the session highs, no 50 points away from dow 13,000 once again. the dow once again up 73 points. you have a lot of winners. the banking index is still under some pressure, but retailers are really stealing the show. many are doing well for a varie
already shrunk by nearly a fifth? >>> and warren buffett on tv this morning saying he wouldn't sell a single share of stock even if he was guaranteed the u.s. goes off the fiscal cliff. just wait until you hear who he thinks should be the treasury secretary. >> we'll begin of course with the deal of the day. conagra foods has agreed to acquire ralcorp for $5 billion. $90 a share in cash. 28% premium to the closing price on monday. kayla tausche reported on potential for a deal between the two companies back in 2011. it creates the largest private label food company in north america. this is a big deal. >> yes, it is. it's big in size in terms of what we've seen in this market. look how excited he is. and they finally got it done. it's been one as you pointed out that was around in 2011. they couldn't get it done. that is conagra. they walked away. ralcorp stock price fell dramatically. they split the post cereal division from ralcorp. the two trade separately. so you did have a company here that perhaps became a little more -- i wouldn't say vulnerable. not as if they were committed
are we today? you get different estimates. warren buffett said 15.5% yesterday is coming in as revenue. i have heard lower figures. that is the reality of what has happened. we have seen a decline in tax revenue and an increase in spending for a variety of reasons. if we are serious about deficit reduction, we have got to move back the golden 19.6%. let's talk for a minute about what has happened. the chairman of the appropriation committee. let's take a look at where the art today compared to where we were in fiscal year 2001 when the federal government ran a $128 billion surplus. compared to the 2001 figure, we are spending less on non- security concessionary spending than we were. the growth in spending has not been in the non-defense discretionary. the cost of security programs in that same time period has gone up 60%. the cost of mandatory programs is up 30%. i want to call your attention to one aspect progressives need to remind people. of the $1.50 trillion already in spending cuts, $900 billion comes from spending. we have given far more than when it comes to defense side. let's t
the economy because of global warming and who was our friend, not warren buffett but the other guy. soros came by and had a great conversation. ralph nader has been by. >> jack abramoff. >> yeah, years ago. >> what did you learn from his fall from grace? >> he did me a favor of not actually involving me in his problems which was good. but i think he spent too much time trying to make money and not enough time trying to change the world. >> are you still friends with him? >> i haven't talked to him in a long time but i have never said anything is notty about him, i don't disease like him. >> as we go, you have an unusual hobby. tell us about that. you collect something unusual. >> oh, i have a collection of whackers, things you hit people with, mostly from africa. i also have -- i also have a collection of air sickness bags from most of the world. if anybody here travels. and the one thing i do ask people who come to meetings, if you're traveling and you're on one of these really -- i have an air sickness bag which is the prepresent government afghanistan air sickness bag. it's a great collecti
